Students Complete Duke of Edinburgh Expedition

Congratulations and well done to a group of Year 10 students who successfully completed their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Expedition.

The students showcased remarkable resilience and teamwork as they camped for 3 days and 2 nights, and walked a total distance of 40 kilometres.

The expedition began with a comprehensive training day, where our adventurers learned essential outdoor skills. The group mastered the art of packing their rucksacks, pitching tents, cooking with gas stoves, and navigating using a compass and map, among other crucial survival techniques.

Following their training, the students embarked on the assessed portion of their expedition. This phase put their newly acquired skills to the test as they navigated their route and managed their camp independently, all while working cohesively as a team.

“It was a unique experience as well as an opportunity for team building and self-sufficiency. We learned how to push ourselves to the limit.” Kaiya.T – Year 10

“I thought it was a fulfilling experience. I learned a lot about navigating and how to be independent while not being able to use technology.” Bobbie.S – Year 10

“The successful completion of the Bronze DofE expedition is a testament to the student’s hard work, determination, and ability to work together under challenging conditions. Well done to all the Year 10 participants for their outstanding achievement!” N.Winterflood – Careers & Enrichment Lead.
